This will involve a total of 240 steel pylons and a mind boggling 108,423m of cables. The system will be powered by 12 twin-power generators, each located in a sound-proof container. Should one of the generators fail, the other generators will provide a back-up power by default. Each generator will also have its own engineer on standby whenever they are in operation. The resulting light will be four times brighter than the lighting in a normal sports arena.
The lights will be situated on only one side of the street circuit. Colin Syn, the deputy chairman of the Singapore GP explained: "This is to prevent the drivers from being disorientated in cases of spinning." Mr. Syn also declared that the run-off areas will be brighter than the actual track.
The Singapore Grand Prix is scheduled to begin at 8pm local time.
